Lemon Drop Martini

Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 1
Categories: Alcoholic Beverages / New / Triple Sec / Vodka

1 1/2  ounces  vodka
1/2  ounce  Triple Sec
1  teaspoon  superfine sugar
3/4  ounce  freshly squeezed lemon juice
    Ice cubes
    Superfine sugar for dipping
    Twisted peel of lemon

1. Mix the vodka, Triple Sec, sugar, and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice; shake well (supposedly the cocktail is to be shaken 40 times to make sure the sugar is well blended). Pour strained liquor into sugar-rimmed martini glass and garnish with a twisted peel of lemon.

2. To create a sugar-rimmed glass, take a lemon wedge and rub the drinking surface of the glass so it is barely moist. Dip the edge of the glass into sugar.

This is a very sweet and lemony drink that came into vogue during the 1970s in California. It is now a favorite drink of the West Coast. Think of the lemon drop candies!
